Graphene based inks to produce conductive cotton textiles
28
Nov '16
A new method for producing conductive cotton fabrics, using graphene-based inks will open up new possibilities for flexible and wearable electronics, without the use of expensive and toxic processing steps. Researchers at the Cambridge Graphene Centre (CGC) are working in collaboration with scientists at Jiangnan University, China to make this possible.

These researchers have devised a method for depositing graphene-based inks onto cotton to produce a conductive textile and demonstrated a wearable motion sensor based on the conductive cotton.

According to CGC, the new process, developed by Dr Felice Torrisi at the CGC, and his collaborators, is a low-cost, sustainable and environmentally-friendly method for making conductive cotton textiles.

“Other conductive inks are made from precious metals such as silver, which makes them very expensive to produce and not sustainable, whereas graphene is both cheap, environmentally-friendly, and chemically compatible with cotton,” Dr Torrisi said. (AR)
